In September last year, the inside and outside of the Beijing International Hotel officially opened to the public. Wu Wei led the team to polish and finish this work for nearly a year.
Slightly rough counting, we have a relationship with tea for more than a thousand years. No matter in terms of time or geography, diversity is a prominent feature in the evolution of Chinese tea affairs, and this also makes Chinese tea drinking methods more worthy of exploration and deduction. Under the tolerant and expansive nature of tea culture, Wushuang has been constructed as a representative of the pan-catering space. It can be traced back to the humanistic and elegant interests, reflecting the heart of the world; it can carry the joyful and pioneering life of the times, and it is wanton and fresh.
Tea affairs volume
From the tea stalls of "carrying pots and tea" in the Jin Dynasty to the formation of the first "tea shop" in the first year of the Tang Dynasty, although tea culture is closely related to literati's elegance, self-reflection and meditation, "leisure" is the most magnificent tea culture.
The back-shaped central tea bar with simple lines integrates tea experience such as camellia waterscape, six arts appreciation, multi-functional area, etc., which can be understood as a lush and pleasant tea island.
According to the spatial layout, rammed earth, travertine slabs, granite, and texture paint reproduce the primitive nature, making the indoor "mountain forest" simple and simple.
In addition, the structural lines are simple, the architectural shape is outlined with a few strokes, and the proportion of modesty and fine carving is controlled to complete the contemporary feeling.
空而充裕 Empty and Ample
格物致远 Go Far
The taste of tea is quiet, so the clear expression is often completed in a clean and simple environment, ancient and modern.
From the entrance, the entire mountain rock is chiseled and hung on the wall, pushing the city into the forest.
The cloister faces inward, with simple steps on the rocks, and the design of the tea room is slightly higher than the ground, like a tea house in the forest floating on the grass, trees, rocks.
The space opens up after entering the central area, the outdoor landscape and skylight are brought in, the wind faces the bamboo and rocks, and the water waves float.
Indoors, traditional tea seats are combined with modern business and social needs, and windows are connected to the outdoor sky.
The weight and weight of materials are in harmony with reality; the selection of utensils follows the principle of "beautiful and strong materials, simple and beautiful workmanship"; tea seats, square tables, walls, and screens are all designed with "natural mountains and rivers", which is the spiritual pioneer of ancient and modern Chinese people.
The extension of a cup of tea is like ripples, and like-minded people enter and interact, and the space has social attributes—tea is fun, landscapes are lovely, elegant and popular, and a modern tea space is alive and thriving.
策略为先 Strategy First
设计为后 Design Follows
Chinese tea culture always has an inexhaustible history to test, but it is free and unrestrained after all. Its close connection with our landscape, humanities, and market makes this modern fusion space particularly appropriate.
In addition to the emotion, pyrotechnics, and spirituality inspired by a small bowl of tea, it also fits the complex life and social needs of contemporary people.
